Online Sub­mis­sion of Work Reg­u­la­tions

Thai-American Business (T-AB) Magazine - - Legal Updates -

All em­ploy­ers who em­ploy ten or more em­ploy­ees in Thai­land are legally re­quired to is­sue and an­nounce work reg­u­la­tions in such work­place as stip­u­lated by the La­bor Pro­tec­tion Act, B. E. 2541 ( the “Act”). Th­ese work reg­u­la­tions pre­scribe at least those par­tic­u­lars as spec­i­fied by the Act, in­clud­ing the work­ing hours and days, hol­i­days and leaves of ab­sence, ter­mi­na­tion of em­ploy­ment, dis­ci­plinary con­ducts, dis­ci­plinary ac­tions, sev­er­ance and spe­cial sev­er­ance pay­ment. Once work reg­u­la­tions are is­sued, they must also be sub­mit­ted to lo­cal la­bor of­fi­cials within seven days of the date of an­nounce­ment.

To sub­mit work reg­u­la­tions online, the em­ployer will have to first reg­is­ter to re­ceive a user­name and pass­word. The date on which the work reg­u­la­tion is deemed to be sub­mit­ted is the date on which the work reg­u­la­tions is dis­played in the Depart­ment of La­bor Pro­tec­tion and Wel­fare’s host sys­tem.

Fail­ure to pre­pare and sub­mit work reg­u­la­tions to lo­cal la­bor of­fi­cials may sub­ject the em­ployer and its re­spon­si­ble di­rec­tors to a max­i­mum fine of Baht 20,000.
